Red Wings’ Kronwall (concussion) aims to return in a week


It was strange to see Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall labeled as “day-to-day” with a concussion, but it turns out that might be accurate: he’s hoping to be back in about seven.

The 32-year-old blueliner told the Detroit Free Press’ Helene St. James that he “feels great” and hopes to get back into action in about a week, as long as doctors can clear his concussion symptoms.

St. James passes along an “Awww” moment:

Judging by Detroit’s schedule, perhaps he could come back sometime in this span:

Wednesday: home vs. Ottawa
Oct. 26: home vs. New York Rangers
Oct. 30: at Vancouver

It wouldn’t be shocking if the Red Wings play it safe and just give him a full week from today (if not more), but we’ll see.
